The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

I'm sure Pogo will eventually make the Full Screen Feature available on more games. It may not be a priority at this time.

As more and more programming is added to each game, (badges, ranks, scoring for tournaments) it is taking more and more time to load them.
And, yes, DSL is slow. Always has been.
But, it can be worked around. Disabling any other devices, like printers, will free up that signal substantially.
Keeping only 1 tab open and disabling background programs will help also. Making sure that the Chat Rooms tab is open instead of the Challenge tab, is another suggestion.

Just got back from measuring Word Whomp loading time... Analog reading of 7 and a half minutes on my DSL line, Windows 7, IE zoom 100%, and Java cache cleared...

Actually, Touton's concern is a legitimate one voiced by MANY Pogo Members. According to one online analog clock, it took EXACTLY 5 full minutes for Payday FreeCell to load on my screen. In my experience, this is the NORM for that game and some other popular ones. To say that tournament games should load within a minute is rather an ideal expectation -- one that probably can be met with players who have a faster-than-DSL connection and a fast computer with lots of memory? As time allows today, I will be back with analog readings of the other tournament games. My guess is that Word Whomp will take more than 5 minutes to load... :?

The games aren't taking long to load for me.

Some games do take longer to load than others.

The games that are used in the Tournaments could take 30 seconds to one full minute to load.

Look at the second hand of an analog clock and the games should load before a minute has passed.

Why does it take so long for the games to load...and not just paycell. I am sick of staring at the Pogo logo with its
bouncing balls waiting waiting waiting...

I use the Magnifier under Ease of Access, as you can adjust the screen size while on the page, without having to change your settings each time. Zoom doesn't work, but this does for everything I've found in both FF and IE browsers, including Pogo. It works in Win8 and Win10.

Particularly for this game, I have to first set my Internet Explorer screen to 150%. Then when the game popup window opens, the cards look much larger. Only with Payday FreeCell do I have to do this and, yes, it is a pain to have to return screen to 100% each time to view other pages. So to avoid this, I play PFC (and most other Pogo games) in Internet Explorer, while I do all my web surfing-email-etc. in Mozilla Firefox. At the same time. Hope this helps some (it's the only way I know how to do it). :-)

I am glad to see that other people are having an issue with the page size too. This is a tough enough game without having to fight to see the cards. Is there a way to have this adjusted. Thanks.

Please read the post above yours and try the suggestions.

Payday Free Cell is a Flash game but there is a new Java update: version 8.101, so update your java in order to play Java based games.
